Our Unrivaled Trips Will Let You Fully Explore Britain

Our extensive trips are one of the unique features of the Cambridge Scholars’ Programme.

Our trips are more comprehensive than those on other summer schools, to let you learn about British culture and history in a practical way - through visiting and exploring our great palaces, castles, museums and more!

The first two trips are for students attending the 1 week option. The last four trips are for students attending the 2 week option.

For your comfort and security, we only use private, luxury air-conditioned coaches for transport on our UK trips.

The Senior Management Team and Mentors accompany the trips, leading small groups of 5-8 students. Freedom and independence to explore in pairs or larger groups of students will be given when it is safe to do so.

Luxury private coaches are used for all trips
